Stroke is the leading cause of death and disability, causing premature death and long term disability.

Between one-third and two-thirds of stroke survivors will experience a loss of function in physical, cognitive or communication skills that require some form of rehabilitation.

41.7% of individuals hospitalized for stroke were discharged home, 39.5% were transferred to another facility, while 18.3% died in hospital.  Rehabilitation helps stroke survivors – whether they are discharged home or to another facility – develop the strength and confidence to live as independently as possible.

Home Instead Senior Care is all about the promotion of living independently, especially when a senior returns home from the hospital after a heart attack or stroke. Our CAREGivers can help seniors transitions safely, here’s how:

  • Doctor Appointments: 
    A Home Instead CAREGiver can keep track of the many scheduled appointments; provide transportation to the doctor’s office or rehabilitation facility.
  • Medication Reminders: 
    A Home Instead CAREGiver can help by picking up new prescriptions and refills and overseeing medication reminders.
  • Nutrition Management:
    A Home Instead CAREGiver can help maintain a heart-healthy diet by meal preparation and grocery shopping
  • Excessive Emotional Stress or Depression:
    Stress, depression or even anger can hurt the heart.  A Home Instead Caregiver can be there for companionship and by alerting family members if the client shows signs of depression.
  • Assistance with Daily Routine:
    When you are in pain after surgery, even the smallest tasks around the house can be difficult to accomplish.  A Home Instead CAREGiver can help with housekeeping, assisting with bathing, dressing toileting and/or other services.
